Ep. 111: Get Out There And Fill Some Time

August 15th, 2019

A schedule change just minutes before we went on the air this week caused our show format for Episode 111 to get ripped up on the fly, and hence, here we have the 'Free For All' episode. 

While we walked in not knowing what to expect (listen to the show to find out why, we explain), it turned into a pretty hilarious show that we think you'll enjoy. We examine some of WWE's direction heading out of SummerSlam, talk some classic wrestling, and somehow get on the topic of Journey. 

Plus, Kyle still gets to his weekly "I Love This Sport Deep Dive of the Week."
